The courage to face the unthinkable is at the core of this magnificent novel. How do we manage to confront the truths in our lives and find forgiveness in the most unforgiving of circumstances? How do we love truly and deeply in a world that is as brutal as it is beautiful?When Ethan Ford fails to show up for work on a brilliant summer morning, none of his neighbors would guess that, for more than 13 years, he has been running from his past. His true nature has been locked away, as hidden as his real identity. But sometimes locks spring open, and the devastating truths of Ethan Ford's history shatter the small-town peace of Monroe, affecting family and friends alike.This deeply felt and compelling novel makes clear why Alice Hoffman has been called "one of the best writers we have today" (Cleveland Plain Dealer). Honest, shattering, seductive, and ultimately healing, Blue Diary is an unforgettable novel by a writer who tells "truths powerful enough to break a reader's heart" (Time magazine).More
"This canny tale of abrupt reversals and courageous, unpopular choices is as suspenseful as it is lyrical and provocative." (Booklist)

like the author but was very disappointed
I have always liked Alice Hoffman but ordered this book by mistake and didn't even listen to the first hour =( It was very long and drawn out & much more dramatic thsn others by the same author.
I will be more careful choosing books by Alice Hoffman.
The performance was too breathy and full of doom.
I couldn't even get that far into the book.
I will have to be moreful choosing books.
